Clean EUkip up NOW make UKIP electable! 


The corruption of EUkip’s leadership, 
their anti UKIP claque in POWER & the NEC 

is what gives the remaining 10% a bad name!  


Nattrass Giles Liquidation!

The way this has been circulated immediately after Mike Nattrass’ comments about Farage has all the hall marks of a typical UKIP smear campaign not disimilar to that which UKIP has mounted against Nikki Sinclaire, Niall Warry, Junius, myself and others!


Subsequent to posting this post I have spoken to an executive at Wilder Coe The Liquidators and they have confirmed to me that Mike Nattrass was not name, cited or implicated in The Liquidation and was NOT a director of the company as involved in the default and liquidation.


This increasingly looks, based upon UKIP’s track record like a classic UKIP attempt to defame an individual and dishonestly suppress free speech and those who dare criticise UKIP which to all intent and purpose is the imnterests of Nigel Farage it would seem and of course those he personally selects and rewards from the public purse!

ANYONE seeking clarification of the facts on this or any other of my blogs is welcome to contact me directly.

many who read this blog will remember the fuss and wild claims of Mike Nattrass – not least the threats!

when Daniel Foggo published this article regarding the FACT that Mike Nattrass was under investigation by OLAF in The Sunday Times:

UKIP MEP Michael Nattrass in expenses fraud inquiry

Daniel Foggo

An MEP for the United Kingdom Independence party is being investigated by the European Union’s anti-fraud watchdog over his use of expenses.

Michael Nattrass, who has represented the West Midlands in the European parliament since 2004, is the subject of an inquiry into whether Denis Brookes, one of his former aides, was paid through public funds while he was working as a regional organiser for UKIP. The EU does not allow taxpayers’ money to be used to pay party officials.

The inquiry into Nattrass, which is part of a wider investigation into UKIP’s finances, comes as one of its former MEPs, Tom Wise, was jailed last week for two years for embezzling funds out of his assistant’s allowance.

It has also emerged that Nattrass was using a company of which he was a shareholding partner as the “paying agent” for all his assistants’ salaries provided by the EU.

Between 2004 and summer this year, all of his assistants’ allowances were channelled through the company account of Nattrass Giles, a chartered surveyors in Birmingham which he founded nearly 30 years ago.

Nattrass was a signatory to the bank account, although he insisted last night that the administration was handled by another partner in the firm who has since died.

MEPs must not act as their own paying agents. The role can only be performed by “third parties”.

New rules brought in since July this year have further tightened the controls and MEPs can now only use accredited people or companies as paying agents.

Nattrass said he had been told by EU officials that he could use his Birmingham company.

He also insisted that Brookes had worked for him in his capacity as an MEP until his employment as an aide came to an end three years ago.

End of article.

The article was correct at the time it was published – you will note it was confirmed in The Guardian article last Sunday which showed that also Graham Booth and Derek Clark had BOTH been found guilty and ordered to repay money to the public purse that they had dishonestly used.
It also showed in the FoI that no further action was taken against Mike Nattrass.

The Guardian article has however brought to light that it is official UKIP policy to lie to its members, the electorate and the media to cover-up for facts they do not wish the public to know!

One sad problem that HAS emerged as a result has been the circulation of ‘e’Mails regarding Mikle Nattrass seerking to smear him and defame him.

This has led to speculation that as a result of Mike Nattrass speaking out against the vile behaviour of Nigel Farage and his racist, pro EU membership EFD group CLICK HERE, that the ‘e’Mails regarding Mike Nattrass’ old estate agency business ‘Nattrass Giles’ may well have emanated from those ‘close’ to Farage!
To put THE FACTS as I understand them:

This issue has also been covered by The Birmingham Paper:


I have every reason to believe that Mike Nattrass sold the company some time ago though it seems from The Sunday Times article above that he was still at that time a signator to bank accounts of the company!

I do believe that it is irresponsible of The Birmingham paper not to have clarified the position of Mike Nattrass as they have named him in the article and from what I understand he has no day to day hands on involvement with the company that could reasonably be considered to embroil him in the liquidation.

I will happily publish any verifiable statement from Mike Nattrass on this issue.
